This year’s A*STAR Makeathon was co-organised with strategic partner, co11ab – BioMedTech incubator tripartite of A*STAR, NTU and NHG.
This three-month innovation programme was a chance for A*STAR, NTU and NHG staff to collaborate with like-minded individuals to create and accelerate their innovative ideas into prototypes through the process of making.
The second edition of the Makeathon focused on the theme of Health & Wellness in the Digital Age. The challenge statements have been developed by drawing insights from government agencies, healthcare institutes, academic institutions, and industry players.
The programme concluded on 14 October with a Demo Day event with the following results:
